The city of Pharr, Texas, will soon begin $30 million in infrastructure projects at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge along the United States-Mexico border.
The projects are aimed at expediting border crossings for the transportation of oil and natural gas products, as well as perishable goods such as avocados from Mexico, said Luis Bazán, general director of the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge.
“This project is of great importance for the border with Mexico, because the international bridge connects with Reynosa, Tamaulipas; it is also the only full-service port for exports and imports in Hidalgo County, Texas,” Bazán said in a release.
